5. Sturgis Motorcycle Rally
Goro participated in the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally in South Dakota.
The moment Goro's Indian Chief approached the main street lined with countless bikes, the atmosphere around him changed. The surrounding American bikers gave way to Goro, and they were glued to him. Some of them even said,
"He is more like an Indian than a real Indian.”
Originally known as a charismatic figure among Japanese bikers, through his travels, Goro came to be loved by bikers in the U.S. and around the world. He visited the sacred site of bikers to interact with the outlaws and gave his handmade Silver Feather to those with whom he became friends. He would decor his leather Jackets with Eagle and Feather accessories of his own and giving them one by one to his travelling companions. This idea was a unique style of Goro.
Through his bike trips, Goro has not only interacted with American Indians, but he has also expanded his social networks by meeting other American bikers.
He used the things he felt, thought, and acquired from his travels to feed his creative activities in Tokyo. In exchange for the Silver Accessory he wore, he gained a new soul.
